You may know the Ukrainian STRELA company by the several posts about their products that I had on this blog. For example, they make very nice suppressors for AKs: Review of the AK suppressor. This company is well known in Ukraine because many soldiers and Special Forces units use their flash hiders, suppressors and muzzle brakes.
The new product of the STRELA Company is a six-round sidesaddle for the Remington 870 shotgun. It is made of aluminum and has rubber inserts. It is made from a solid block of metal to give it additional toughness. It looks very nice when installed onto a Remington 870 with Magpul furniture. It works perfectly with the Magpul forend. This sidesaddle has a look that is similar to the Mesa Tactical and ShellShield sidesaddles.
A shotgun sidesaddle is a convenient accessory for shotgun owners because it gives them the ability to carry more ammunition right on their weapon. That way, they don’t have to put down their weapon to go looking for more ammunition insidesl a bag or something. They can just take a shotshell right off the sidesaddle that is attached to their shotgun, load the shotshell into the chamber and then fire away. This saves them quite a bit of time in the reloading process because they don’t have to go far to get more ammunition for their weapon, since the shotshells are stored right there on the weapon itself. If you are a soldier on the battlefield, a law enforcement officer, or just somebody who needs to be able to reload quickly, the shotgun sidesaddle is an invaluable necessity that you must own.
When you think of using a firearm for home defense you might think of a handgun because it is smaller and easier to carry around. But you should also think about using a Remington 870 for defending your home as well. This pump action shotgun makes it easy for any gun owner to hit their target without having to be 100% accurate. After all, even if you practice shooting with a handgun at a shooting range and hit the target each time, it is a little different when you have to shoot a human target that is trying to hurt you. Your adrenaline will be all spiked up and you may have trouble concentrating enough to accurately aim your gun and fire at the assailant. But with a Remington 870, all you really need to do is point the gun in the general direction of your target and fire. The pellets from the shell are bound to strike the person and stop them from trying to hurt you or your family. Not only will it stop them, but it will do far more damage to them than a handgun ever would.
